Luggage allowances

One of the best things about travelling with Eurostar is that there’s no weight restriction for your luggage, as long as you’re able to carry your own bags onto the train.

Read on to find out more about how many items you can take with you.
Luggage allowance on Eurostar

What luggage can you take on the Eurostar

Adults

If you’re travelling with an adult ticket, you can take:

  • 2 pieces of luggage (up to 85cm long) including rucksacks, bags, suitcases or ski equipment
  • 1 small piece of hand luggage, e.g. handbag, laptop bag or briefcase

Pushchairs and prams travel for free in addition to your individual allowance. You’ll just need to fold your pram and store it in the luggage rack above your seat.

Business Premier

If you’re travelling with a Business Premier ticket, you can take:

  • 2 pieces of luggage (up to 85cm long) including rucksacks, bags, suitcases or ski equipment
  • 1 small piece of hand luggage, e.g. handbag, laptop bag or briefcase

Children

Little ones travelling with a child’s ticket can take:

  • 1 piece of luggage (up to 85cm long)
  • 1 piece of hand luggage

Children under 4 years old travel free with Eurostar, so you don’t need to include them in your booking and they won’t need a ticket. Since they won’t have a seat or luggage allowance, they’ll need to sit on the lap of a parent or guardian.

Extra luggage

If you’d like to take more than the standard luggage allowance with you, or items over 85cm long, you’ll just need to use our registered luggage service, Eurodespatch. This service is available in London, Paris, Lille and Brussels.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept any registered items, or those over 85cm long, to or from Ashford, Ebbsfleet, Calais, Disneyland® Paris and our ski destinations.
